10/16/16 – Wedding

About a year ago my cousin Clare and her fiancé Roy called me and said they were getting married at the Hotel Valencia in San Antonio. It was an honor for them to believe and trust in me enough to DJ and help plan their wedding. Not only was the wedding amazing and my family still raving about it, but the up-lighting done by ILD was absolutely gorgeous! I’ll never forget sharing such great memories with y’all on such a special day!


Hype Rhythm Wedding

10/15/16 – Wedding

Thanks and Congratulations to Bethany and Sam, who were married at Angel Springs in Georgetown, Texas. Loved this one as the bride and groom had an awesome taste in 60’s oldies, country music, and metal. Thanks for trusting in me to rock your party!

9/28/16 – Austin Silent Disco @ Concrete Cowboy

Was asked once again by the guys at the Austin Silent Disco to do a corporate party at the Concrete Cowboy on West 6th. Went head-to-head against two other DJs (Red and Green). I represented Team Blue. As you can see from the picture above, Team Blue knows what to do! Honestly, at first I was skeptical of the fun of an event where you put headphones on, but it’s seriously always one of the best dance parties I’ve have ever been to! I highly recommend giving it at least a chance one day!

9/27/16 – ILEA Monthly Meeting

Thank you to ILEA for having me out to DJ a quick hour 70’s and 80’s music set while at the monthly meeting. Seriously had such a fun time mixing such a fun throwback set. Thanks to Lisa Hause Photography, who caught this candid photo of me having a chuckle.


Hype Rhythm Mitzvah

9/25/16 – Layla’s Mitzvah

Repost from Instagram, but special thanks to Rachael Hall for capturing this great shot from the bat mitzvah at the AT&T Conference Center at UT Austin. Layla wanted a vintage themed mitzvah. Thanks to Modern Jewish Wedding for bringing together The Cup Cake Bar, Disch Events, Shutterbooth CTX, Bee Lavish Vintage, and Love Joy Events, who all pulled off some amazing teamwork to transform the space into a mini grand ball!

9/10/16 – Emily and Jack’s Mitzvah

Had a great time at The Oasis for Emily and Jack’s B’nai Mitzvah! Shout out to Andy Sam’s Photography for the great pictures you see above. Dominique with Lavish Me did an amazing job coordinating the event. Finally thanks to Alchemist Prime for helping me DJ this mitzvah as you can see above. This party was seriously a candidate for mitzvah of the year!!

Wedding Season!

Wedding 8/27/16

8/27/16 – Wedding

Traveled down from Austin to San Antonio to have the honor of DJing for Mike and Adrianna this week in downtown San Antonio at San Fernando Hall. I usually recommend only 2 to 3 hours max of a dance segment. However, the couple wanted to go for a full 5 hours. Admittedly, I was worried at first that guests were gonna last that long, but as I always tell people, Hype Rhythm DJ brings the real party! Guests danced the full 5 hours to a mixture of Hispanic music, pop music, and 90’s throwbacks. Thank you to Mike and Adrianna for trusting me with such a big task! Glad I could make yall’s night unforgettable!

Hype Rhythm DJ is now the resident DJ (6 nights a month) @ The Nook on 6th street. Up above, you can see we are doing a monthly Silent Disco at The Nook. Club goers get to pick between three channels on their headphones (given to you when you check in your ID) (Red, Green, and Blue) of three different DJs playing different music. We will be mixing up dance music, rap, trap, and EDM remixes. Check the 6th street tab up above for specific dates. Shout out to photographer, Brian Delumpa, for snapping these awesome shots during one of our first sets ever at the Nook in August.

July Gigs

San Marcos Conference Center

7/13/16 San Marcos Conference Center Holiday Open House

Austin’s Best Wedding DJ takes on San Marcos! After the Peck/Keel Wedding Nick did back in April at the San Marcos Conference Center, Hype Rhythm was asked back to represent their preferred vendors to work with in promotion of the upcoming Christmas/holiday corporate party barrage that will happen in December. Shout out to Gary with Green Dot event planning and decor, and MyEventIsTheBomb party entertainers and photo booth, both of whom were also at the Canyon View Event Center open house last month. Great professionals in the industry and a delight to work with. I highly recommend them for your party if you’re still looking!


Buckshot 4th Anniversary

July is our least favorite month to do outdoor weddings. However, we have been keeping busy doing private events, open houses, and of course DJing at night downtown. DJ Nick is gonna be spinning at the Buckshot 4th year anniversary 8-11pm on the last Sunday of the month. Check it out if you have the time!

Canyon View Event Center Canyon View Event Center Expo

6/30/16 Canyon View Event Center Open House

Had a good time spinning tunes at Canyon View Event Center, one of the newest spaces in town. When I walked in the first thing I said was “This place would be perfect for holiday parties and mitzvahs!” With a parking garage built right underneath, and a quick elevator ride to the top, its large party friendly, and also featuring a beautiful spacious view of the Austin hill country. Check it out if you’re in the hunt for a venue.

6/25/16 Old Folks Wedding

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s never too late to fall in love! Pictured above is Syd and Chuck, both in their late 70’s. Along with Love Joy Events, Crave Catering, Disch Events, and Rachel Hall Photography, we helped pull off the most stress free and perfect wedding anyone could ask for. Per request of the bride, some of the best music from the 60’s and 70’s were mixed together by DJ Nick @ Night all night. If you read this, thanks again Syd and Chuck.

6/10/16 – Wedding

Ventured down from Austin to Helotes, Texas to the Gardens at Old Town for this beautiful couple, Kelly and Jordan. Even though the humidity was insane, the music was on point at getting people up on the dance floor all night. Gotta give them a lot of love as they booked with me about a year ago before I had even started Hype Rhythm! Thanks for trusting in me and glad I could help make your reception unforgettable!
